Frontier 'Goldrush' frame in trike form!

Sank came wanting a trike frame to fit his Suzuki GSX1100G motor. Then he saw one of our Goldrush frames on the bench and loved it. Did we think we could make a frame similar that would fit a  big Suzuki engine?
With very small adjustments, the main frame and seat rails fitted snugly around the big Suzuki motor  and drop down  more steeply to meet the lower frame loop which supports the BMW diff 

Note the Goldrush frame on the jig behind Sank's trike
Almost identical lines, low and fast.
How adaptable are these frames......
